By: Bangkok Day Tours and sightseeing in Thailand
Aug. 7, 2008 - PRLog -- Loy Krathong is a beautiful festival celebrated annually throughout Thailand on the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month, which is usually in November. This festival comes at the end of the Rainy Season when the rivers are high and lakes are full. http://bangkokdaytours.com/Festivals/LoyKrathongFestival.html

It is traditionally the time of year for Thai Buddhists to give thanks to the Goddess of the Water for her plentiful supply and also an opportunity to apologise to her for polluting the waters throughout the year.

Loy Krathong literally means ‘Floating Vessel’ and the krathong is traditionally made using a cross-section of a banana tree trunk about 3-4 cms thick for the base. The outside edge of the base will be decorated with artistically folded banana leaves, while inside there will be a centre candle and three incense sticks.

Many people will add a clipping of their finger nails and a snippet of hair together with some small coins, before making a wish and floating their krathong on the waters. By so doing they hope that any bad luck will also float away from them and that the coming season will be filled with happiness and good fortune.

There are many festivals held throughout Thailand each year, and Bangkok Day Tours organise trips to many of these.  http://bangkokdaytours.com/Festivals/ElephantFestivalSuri... However, the Loy Krathong festival is undoubtedly the most beautiful and most romantic of them all.

The best place to witness this festival is on the water itself and this year Bangkok Day Tours is organising a special Loy Krathong Festival River Cruise on the Chao Phraya River which will include a banquet dinner and your own personal krathong.

You’ll be able to float your floral krathong from the deck of the historic teakwood rice barge while enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner, surrounded by stars, twinkling lights and the dulcet sounds of a traditional Thai kim, while gently gliding down the river.

Savour a superb ten-course Thai Traditional & Seafood set menu aboard the oldest and only authentic luxury teakwood rice barge operating on the river and experience the same superlative service and attention to detail that has been offered to royalty, heads of state, international celebrities and people from all over the world for the past 30 years. It is an experience of Thailand you will never forget.
